S. Census). He describes the ENIAC, outfitted for medical and armed forces purposes; the UNIVAC, the 1st normal function computing device; and ARPANET, the Internet's precursor. Ceruzzi's account strains the world-changing evolution of the pc from a room-size ensemble of equipment to a "minicomputer" to a laptop machine to a pocket-sized clever mobile. He describes the advance of the silicon chip, which may shop ever-increasing quantities of knowledge and enabled ever-decreasing equipment dimension.
